Port Talbot Motor Club would like to extend its thanks to all the Marshals, Stage Commanders, Radio Controllers, Radio Crews, Time Keepers, Safety Units and everyone else who give up their time to make the event happen.
Without your help, events like this could not run. Thank You for your continued support.
If you had thought of becoming involved in motorsport, the best way to do this without the expense of running a car is to marshal.
Admittedly, the weather cannot be guaranteed, particularly on Epynt, but you can get a lot of satisfaction by being part of a team of people on a Tramac stage rally.
As well as general marshalling, which in itself is a vital & valuable role – there are other forms that include Time Keeping, Sector Marshal, Forest stage Marshal, Radio crews. If you think that this is something you may wish to get more involved with, a good way is to join your local Car or Motor Club, where you can speak to like minded people who would be only too willing to welcome you, and offer their experience.
If you wish to progress further within the sport, our governing body – The Motor Sports Association runs a licensing register of Marshals, that offers a grading scheme which takes you from a Trainee up to a Senior Official/ Organiser level should you. By getting a license you would be able to assist on such events like ‘Wales Rally GB’. More information on this HERE.
In preparation for this year’s rally, we will need many marshals once again to help with the running of the event. If you are not planning to compete, please consider coming to help marshal, along with your colleagues & fellow club members to run, what we promise will be a challenging route for competitors.
If you are able to assist PTMC, please contact either of our Chief Marshal's :
Antony Stoneman : email@example.com
Brent Oatway : firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rally H.Q. is at the Castle Hotel Llandovery, with signing on starting around 15.00 on Saturday afternoon the 11th March. More details to follow on the location for marshal signing on on Sunday the 12th March.
